About this Product

Pure Sangiovese from the vineyard of the same name, planted in 1935 by Duke Amedeo of Savoy-Aosta. A prestigious and elegant wine that represents the more historic side of Tenuta Sette Ponti, a testament to the estate’s rich past and of the elegance of the production of top wines. It is produced only in the best vintages, in limited edition and each bottle is numbered. This Sangiovese represents tradition and territory: soils rich in marl, long vinification in large oak barrels, no filtration, and bottle aging make for a wine destined to last over time, just as the vineyard has – a cru vineyard that made history, like the event that gave it its start.

About Italy

Italy boasts more indigenous grape varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most Italian wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some Italian wine regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties.

Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany, as well as Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy Piedmontese wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the white wines, Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Garganega. The list goes on.

About Sangiovese

The perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is among Italy's elite red grape varieties and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino wines.

Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may actually contain no Sangiovese at all!
